Intellitec Products LLC launched the Battery Guard 1000 smart battery disconnect at RVX: The RV Experience in Salt Lake City last week.
According to a press release, the product alarms when the voltage is low and automatically disconnects power at a preset level to prevent battery rundown. It also communicates the battery status and can be controlled by either a momentary or a maintained contact.
“Intellitec is focused on providing more value to our customers by incorporating intelligence into our products,” Intellitec President Ned Schiff says. “We have a great history in battery management with over 2 million battery disconnects in operation world-wide. The BG1000 is easy to install and economical. The feedback from our customers has been very positive.”
Jeff Caudill, Intellitec Products’ applications engineering manager, stated, “Preventing dead batteries provides tremendous value to the vehicle owner, dealers, and OEM manufacturers. It provides real protection for the customer, avoids dead batteries on the dealers’ lots, reduces warranty costs, and prevents damage to the coil that can be caused by a sticky switch.”
The initial introduction of the BG1000 is for 100 amps systems in 12- and 24-volt models.
